From the City...
Here's a little recap of our August so far; we survived a weekend long camping adventure at Hillside with a one year old, went on our first canoe ride and made an eggplant parmesan with a fresh picked eggplant from a school garden project right here in Toronto.
Here's a better picture of the crowd that Simon was playing for at Hillside, I'm just so damn proud of that guy and I wanted to show him off.
I think he stood in the canoe the entire time, we'll get to boat etiquette later...
Here's what I did:
Sliced an eggplant nice and thin. In a bowl, crack an egg and scramble with a little milk. In another bowl, add a good scoop of flour. Dip eggplant in egg and then in flour and then back into the egg and then back into the flour. Then pan fry the little suckers in mixture of butter and vegetable oil until they're nice and crispy. In a shallow baking dish, add a scoop of tomato sauce and then layer eggplant with sauce, cheese, sauce, eggplant...you get the picture.
Bake in a hot oven for 45 minutes until its good and bubbly and browned on the top.
